First 2-Bale Silage Wrapper

Making silage out of big bales has become common practice in England and now a manufacturer has come out with the first bale wrapper that'll wrap two bales at once.

Developed by William Cook Engineers, Ltd., the new machine has two hydraulic-powered turntables with separate plastic wrapping tensioner arms. Both bale wrappers can be used at the same time or independently. Each wrapper has three powered rollers which allows them to easily handle misshapen bales. The adjustable tensioner arms can be set to make up to a 50% overlap when wrapping to seal the bales up air tight.

A single large tractor, or two smaller tractors, can be used to provide hydraulic power to the wrapper. The machine is fitted with lights, brakes, and a ball hitch.
